Application Process


Following your enquiry you will receive a School prospectus and then be invited to come and visit the School and meet the Headmistress. A tour of the School will give you an idea of why we believe 'The Squirrels' provides a vibrant and stimulating start to a child's learning journey and will give you an opportunity to find the answers to any questions you may have, or discuss your child's individual needs.

If you wish to apply for a place you will need to complete and return our Registration Form along with the registration fee of £100 and any relevant supporting documents (recent school report etc).

The Registrar will then make arrangements for your child to visit the School and spend some time in their class ready for starting, depending on the child's age.

Please send your registration form to

Mrs Lesley Miller
Dean Close Pre-Preparatory School

Taster Day

Prior to entry, children are invited to spend a 'taster' session in their prospective year group, during which informal assessment will take place. This provides an opportunity for the children to get to know their peer group and class teacher before they start School. Parents also receive a comprehensive Welcome Pack, which gives details of every aspect of life at 'The Squirrels'.
